I am writing an article on crohn's disease. In several publications i've read that crohn's sufferers could benefit from the anti-inflammatory effects of omega-3 fatty acids. Does anybody know what the recommended and/or accepted daily intake is?
Thank you in advance.
I take t his for crohn's disease and other disorders I was born with. The recommeded dose is two soft gel pills a day. I'm not sure if it makes a difference but my daughter takes it for other things.
Your best bet is to talk to a pharmacist who knows more about medications than your doctor does. Doctor's tend to not want you to take otc's from gnc. Why? Because they don't get their kickbacks for rx'ing prescription drugs. Lovely huh?
Hope this helped you out and if not sorry I wasted ur time.

hey, I have had abdominal pains for the longest time and where I live, the doc's arent the greatest there rare and hard to keep in northern canada, but I finally was diagnosed with crohns, its not the funnest thing to have when I feel well I go all out and take advantage of it, ive tryed to keep up with taking vitamins for ht longest time through out m youth but it always fell through, but now with having crohns and just finding out this week, when I take my vitamins and the omega 3-6-9 I just stated trying last month, I feel better I dont know why but I dont get the pain very much maybe a slight pain here or there but not a full blown attack, I would suggest trying it, it cant do any harm, the omega 3-6-9 I have suggest 3 pills a day so breakfest lunch and dinner. Im 21 and have had these pains for 2 years and only found out this week what it actually was after having the docs tell me I have excessive acid and giving me antacids... Thats was the most frustrating 2 years ever....
my husband was diagnosed with crohn's when he was 14 aftre seven years of trying to find out what was wrong( seven years that nearly killed him). since he left his teen years behind the disease has quieted down quite a bit however in the six years we've been married he's had at least four decent flares. that being said he's never had to have surgery, he has had a wonderful doc who has done everything to avoid introducing him to steriods, and becasue he's an idiot - won't take his asicol. in fact he hasn't taken any in years. what he does is take a generic multi-vitamin, fish oil capsules every day, and eats salmon and sardines on a regular basis. I also only cook in healthy oils. recently I've been using a lot of coconut oil as well. it works. it works for him at least. it has made an enormous difference. he was raised on nothing but junk food- and except for those few things continues to eat nothing but junk food. the boy should be much much sicker then he is with his bad habits. ( when he was first diagnosed his case was classified as severe. it's by no means gone- but he's generally pretty healthy in that it rarely affects his day to day life at all). i think it's the fish oil.
Clary sage seeds oil does not contain heavy metals such as mercury and cadmium (which accumulate in the body and are very toxic), while fish contain plenty of mercury in their bodies (and even though Omega-3 food additives are cleansed of heavy metals, they are never 100% pure, while clary sage seeds are).
I've had Crohn's for about 12 years and after a particularly nasty flare-up some years ago, a dietician told me to take 3000mg per day, which I've done ever since. I buy Omega 3 500mg capsules & take 6 a day. I really think they help dampen down inflammation but in addition to this, my moods were improved (depression) and they're good for my heart!
You say, "There is a law suit from March 2010 against 8 of the biggest manufacturers of fish oil supplements. Beware!"
Are you able to say which ones or would that be slanderous? I buy all of my Omega 3, Evening Primrose, Co-Q10 etc from a big company in Jersey....hoping it doesn't include them. Or did you mean in the States?
